Biography

Anne Redmond has been employed on a contractual basis with TWU since 2010 when she first moved from the east coast of Canada. Her teaching background began in 1984 when she worked as a clinical instructor in pediatrics for Dalhousie University. After a hiatus to raise her children, she returned to teaching at the University of New Brunswick, Saint John campus where her primary areas of teaching included skills lab, clinical learning, and some classroom lecturing. Her clinical background is in pediatrics and home health, although she has taught in oncology, orthopedics, surgery and medicine. Overall, Anne takes great interest in the experience of nursing education. Her thesis, “The Lived Experience of Learning Psychomotor Nursing Skills” arose from her observations that student nurses did not approach skill learning in the same way other psychomotor skills were acquired. Learning nursing skills is a more complex process because of the relational nature of the work and caring involved. During her time at the SON at TWU, Anne has taught first year, clinical, second year labs and Nursing 321: Nutrition. In addition, Anne has had the pleasure of working as a research assistant with Dr. Sheryl Reimer- Kirkham, Dr. Rick Sawatsky and Dr. Barb Astle. She also has an interest in simulation learning and inter-professional collaboration. She has served on several boards and committees over her career and most recently selected to join the British Columbia Lab Educator’s Group, in addition to working on committee’s for SON.

Research & Scholarship

Research interest include psychomotor skill learning and simulation. She is currently working with Dr. Barb Astle as a research assistant in global health citizenship and competencies for nursing education. She was honored to be part of a publication on spirituality and leadership with several faculty from the SON.
